YEW 2020 events revealed!

We are pleased to announce that the full list of events for the inaugural York Environment Week is now available!

We have 22 events taking place over the week of 28th November to 6th December, covering the five themes of Energy, Food, Nature, Resources & Waste and Travel & Transport. The vast majority of these events will be online through Zoom and require booking on Eventbrite in order to get the details. However, there will also be some opportunities to get involved in outdoor volunteer work, even if lockdown restrictions are still in place in December, due to an exemption in the rules for this kind of activity.

During the week, you will be able to learn about eco-housing, flood risk management, the impact of food on the environment, how to draught-proof your house and much more. We are also very excited to tell you that the One Planet York revitalisation event will feature a keynote from researcher and environmental writer Mike Berners-Lee, author of the ground-breaking books ‘How Bad Are Bananas? The Carbon Footprint of Everything’ and ‘There is No Planet B’.

For organisers making preparations for their events, we now have a How To section to help with the technical and practical aspects of hosting an online event. If there is anything else you would like to see a guide on, or if you need to get some technical help direct from the YEW team, please get in touch.

Other than that, please have a browse of the events and get booking, and we look forward to seeing you in a few weeks!
